Summary

On a remote island, everyone is a suspect.... 

When private investigator Hanlon is hired to protect famous yoga instructor Camille Anderson on her Scottish island retreat, she thinks this may be her simplest job yet. 

But when an attack on Camille's life goes wrong, it soon becomes clear that there is a murderer on the island - and Hanlon will stop at nothing to track them down. 

With only a small group of guests the suspects are clear, but as the body count rises Hanlon must step up to find out who the killer is before it’s too late.... 

A tense, atmospheric listen from Alex Coombs. Perfect for fans of Angela Marsons and Lisa Regan.

Pleased I persevered with the first P.I Hanlon

I wasn't sure I was going to get away with the narration at first. I speeded up the reading of the first book by .5x and it was okay. After a few chapters I was hooked. Buried for good has been my favourite and I hope there are more to come. I think Hanlon is great. I have ended up really enjoying the narrator,.

Likeable, realistic characters brilliant narration

Pi Hanlon is a beautifully flawed individual with a stubborn streak!
Great ingredients for a detective.

Excellent All Round

This is part 3 of Hanlon as a private investigator and it’s the best of the trilogy. Great writing and characters and narrator Carolyn Bonnyman is perfect! Book 2 took a bit of a dip after enjoying book 1 but this was excellent. I love Hanlon’s character.. a very strong lead

Hanlon, my hero! 🙂

Looking forward to book 4. So enjoying the Scottish noir, the character development & a bit of escapist nonsense. The narration is perfect..

Craggy Island Chaos

Strange tale of goings on with new agey yoga guru and an aged rock star, a hilarious knife throwing magician and a love affair when Hanlon has no chemistry whatsoever with Murdo. Well scripted, darkly funny at times crime romp. VERY ENTERTAINING

exciting and entertaining

I like reader very much. Her lovely accent is perfect for this story. I don't think I'd like the main character in real life but in this series I really enjoyed the tale very much.

My least favourite Alex Coombs book

I’ve listened to 2 other Alex coombs books and absolutely loved them, hence downloading the third but this one was not a patch on the other two. It just didn’t have the same liveliness and pace of the previous two, and also included in an element of the magical/psychic which I really didn’t like. It was ok but if I’d have read this one first, I wouldn’t have downloaded any of the authors other stories, which would have been a real shame.

Kept Me Guessing

Great suspect list. Keeps you guessing to end. BTW what is Campbell's first name-Murdor?

Boring

This was a complete disappointment after having listened to the first two books in this series. This was long and drawn out. There were way too many suspects and no clear motives for each suspect. I listened through to the end because I used a credit. It should’ve been free. There was just absolutely too much going on and the conclusion left me just as confused as the beginning did.
I’m very disappointed.

Enjoying this series a lot

This is the 3rd book in this series. Not only am I enjoying each individual mystery, but also the longer arc of character development across the books.

Beautifully written, the sense of place is always present, but descriptions never slow the narrative. Physical actions are easy to follow - not always an easy feat in books that feature a lot of action sequences.

The main character is unique in my experience of mystery fiction. Describing her too much would be a spoiler, so I’ll just say that she’s far more than she seems to be at 1st meeting.

I highly recommend this series and I’m hoping it continues.

It is Riveting!

Hanlon is a captivating character and one does not want to miss what happens next in the story.

Can’t wait for next book

I love this series, perhaps because of the narrator who was brilliant. One criticism is I don’t know enough about the main character, but that could be because the author is waiting to reveal more in future books.
